The place

A 4,000-square-foot home in North York. This three-bedroom, four-bathroom house has a modern exterior and luxurious interior finishes.

The history

Local architect Richard Wengle built this home more than 20 years ago. In 2012, previous owners renovated the interior, adding new hardwood floors and updating the kitchen. Then, in 2017, the current sellers bought the place for $2,660,000. The home was listed for $3 million in 2019, but the sellers have since dropped the asking price.
